Can anyone show me how to do Lewis dot structures in this medium?

Of course, the querent could simply go to any good search engine and ask for informations about sulfite ion, or sulfitic acid or sulfur trioxide and try exercising their own gray matter a bit. That would be the best thing to do.

Sulfur trioxide is a planar non-polar resonance hybrid, O2S(+)O(-), of three identical limiting structures. What's the matter boy - can't draw a Lewis dot diagram? Then fail chemistry.

^^^ English for:
"You are so unobservant. I did that junk last year in a chemistry class. Not that that was relevant, but it gave me a reason to gloat over you. Go RTFM, dipsh*t."

Now now, children. Play nice.

For reference, I took Chemistry 1 2 years ago, and I remember most of it but did you see me tell that poor kid to go consult a textbook? NO!
